Hello models and fellow industry peers, my name is Kabba Coulibaly and i am a 100% self taught bespoke clothing designer. I make patterns from body measurements and in turn use those patterns to create custom fitting bespoke pieces for both men and women. All photos featured are garments that have been drafted, sewn and fitted by me. If you are interested in hiring me I am happy to send you an email explaining my process for working with design clients including basic rates and costs you'd be expected to cover. I'm also happy to make patterns for other designers as well as create fit model or showroom samples. Please and respectfully note that I abhor the word "exposure" and am not interested in working for free in any facet. I would much more prefer a barter of sorts in a way that we can both benefit. If you are representing a major publication then I imagine the deal would have to be quite beneficial for me to consider giving my clothes away. That having been said I do need a regular photographer and a tall male fit model to shoot in my samples, message me if you're interested. I am currently working non exclusively with Mr.Paul Wharton and his agency Artist Evolution Models.
I'm extremely friendly and happy to speak to anyone whom is interested in my work as i love making new friends. I also have a deep respect for other artists and I hope to meet more of you and develop working relationships through this avenue and forum. I thank you for visiting my page, all comments will be returned.
P.S. Any and all models wishing to work with me please note that I am naturally tall (6 feet 5 inches) and quite thin in stature therefore i tend to make my clothing on the taller side. My personal samples which are often times unisex tend to best flatter tall (5'10 and above) lightly muscled girls and guys. Kindly have on hand or know your basic measurements as if you're requesting working with me i will be asking for them.
Males: Height, Weight, Chest, Waist, Arm hole, Hips, Inseam
Females: Bust, Natural Waist, Pant waist, Hips, Arm Hole, Inseam
Email address can be given upon request.
